Tofino 2011: Girl getaway

The happiest moments my heart knows are those in which it is pouring forth its affections to a few esteemed characters.
– Thomas Jefferson



I spent the weekend with the following lovely ladies (Emily, Rhiannon, and Farley). It’s always bittersweet to end a weekend with such amazing women, but all the sweetness comes back when you relive the memories in photos and a few notes about what truly made the weekend heart felt, loving, hilarious, and fun-filled.

Top moments of Tofino 2011:

  • The start of a roadtrip. Playlist made and picking girlfriends up at the ferry.
  • The Coolidge girl’s drink a beer, eat an appetizer, and pay the bill in a total of 10 minutes.
  • Arrival before sunset.
  • Opening the first bottle of wine.
  • Discovering the Say Yes to the Dress marathon on TLC.
  • Giggling… constantly.
  • Waking up to NO ALARM!
  • Long walks on the beaches (seriously underrated)
  • Walk to Lighthouse Point
  • Run to Lighthouse Point
  • Trying on wetsuits for the first time. Literally one of the funniest moments of my life.
  • Listening to Emily tell our hot surf instructor why jellyfish can not sting the palm of your hand (nerd alert).
  • Piper (the dog) on a surfboard.
  • Seeing the awful photos taken from the beach by the official “photographer”. “Yah I would have bought those if you had actually made me look GOOD!”
  • Apres surfing drinks.
  • Lemon tarts from Sobo.
  • Making admiration cards.
  • Laughing constantly.
  • Choco-Banana milkshake from Tacofino.
  • Not having to say goodbye right away because they missed the ferry.
